Since 6 years Conny and Thommy (Mantoco) are on an exciting journey around the world with their ACTION MOBIL "Manni". They have written a little report about their adventures and want to share it with us. Here we are and present part 1 - From Morocco to the Ivory Coast.
The new video, produced by Otti Reitz, follows the ACTION MOBIL ATACAMA 6300 through the rough wilderness of the north-western part of Namibia: the isolated Damaraland. The expedition leads through the narrow Khowarib gorge, down the Ombonde river bed with its deep sand and "deep dust" passages and into the wonderfull "Little Serengeti".
The Atacama AROCS 5000 HD was the first 4x4 motor home that ACTION MOBIL built on a Mercedes AROCS chassis. Due to its extremely stable and powerful chassis the AROCS is strong enough to carry a most compact lifting-roof fixture on only two axles. Thus, the ATACAMA 5000 HD is most space saving and with its powerful 530 PS extremely maneuverable.
The proud owner of the Atacama sent us some pictures of his dream 4x4 motor home in action.
HIGH TECH BY ACTION MOBIL WITH A NEW FACE: A compact all-wheel motorhome for the big adventure: Small turning radius, high additional load, hydraulic lift for 2 spare tires and a motor bike, high-degree burglarproof cabin, 4 seats in cockpit, 2 separate double beds, designer bedroom on 1st floor, comfort amenities in the cabin.
New ATACAMA 5800 ready for the worlds largest 4x4 show "Abenteuer Allrad in Bad Kissingen" from 15 June - 18 June 2017
The elegant 4x4 motor home Atacama 5800, with its solid construction and comfortable interior design, is ready for the worlds largest 4x4 show and cross-country expo in Bad Kissingen. We are presenting our newest state-of-the-art all-wheel motor home at the "Abenteuer Allrad" from 15 June - 18 June 2017. Before the show we have some insights and pictures for you.
The founders of ACTION MOBIL as well as the present managers are enthusiastic globetrotters. In the end of 2016 they put the new Atacama 6300 to a test drive in the rough terrain of the Kaokoveld in Namibia. Otti Reitz produced a documentary about this test trip and included material of driving in dry and wet riverbeds, mastering narrow passages and extreme ground formations and close encouters with the famous Desert Elephants of Namibia.
A client was kind enough to lend us the ACTION MOBIL ATACAMA 6300 to carry out this test drive. It is a rare sign of trust for which the Management wishes to express a big thank you.
The objective of this test drive was to gather technical data and to find out how the vehicle behaves off-road under difficult conditions. Before setting off, technical devices for chassis optimization were installed at our plant.
Blog by Steffi and Otti Reitz of ACTION MOBIL, founders of ACTION MOBIL
More than 25 years ago, Steffi and I passed by this lonesome place in our old ACTION MOBIL Pinzgauer. We are here in the SESFONTAIN Area, somewhere between Sesfontain and Purros, in the northwest of Namibia. At that time, there were but a few vehicle tracks and the two solitary rocks amid the landscape impressed us. This is why we took a break here and later on, climbed the rock.
Unspoilt landscapes where you feel like being on the moon - not to be reached in a common motorhome!
ACTION MOBIL globetrotter motorhomes are built and equipped to master such landscapes. As nature in Namibia is highly sensitive and in many places totally untouched by civilization, we deem it our duty to protect those landscapes and to leave as few traces as possible when travelling through. You should not deviate from existing tracks in order not to leave fresh tyre traces in areas that have been untouched so far.
The chassis of the ATACAMA 6300, in which we are on tour here, has been optimized in some respects and we are testing it now. Technical innovations have been developed for improving the driving behaviour with regard to short and deep bumps.
A three-point suspension of the sub-frame allows for an optimum axle articulation in off-road terrain. Innovative damping elements are to reduce the pendular movement of the vehicle body. Test results and our experience during the journey will be reported in Part 3.
ACTION MOBIL in the Outback. The Australien Outback stands for endless, uninhabited vastness and solitude. Reliable technology is an essential prerequisite for taking the challenge of travelling in your own motorhome.
After enduring heat, dust and physical exertion, you will find any convenience imaginable in the ACTION MOBIL cabin and soon the strain of the day will be forgotten.
The ACTION MOBIL team would like to thank you for your keen interest and for visiting us in large numbers at our stand.
The ACTION MOBIL Type: ATACAMA 6300 was a highlight at the exhibition and has once more created quite a stir. Innovative and practice-proven technology, combined with functional interior design, and cosy atmosphere in the living-room area makes the ACTION MOBIL travel- and expedition motorhomes stand out.
The most important features of the Atacama 6300: All-terrain, functional, powerful and creative. This new off-road motorhome belongs to the most popular Actionmobil series Atacama.
What is particularly remarkable is the sanitary area in the front part of the cabin. A sophisticated door system makes it possible to integrate the passage to the driver’s cab as a change room, if needed. Another feature that is highly popular is the U-shaped sofa in front of the permanent double bed. Below the bed there is a dust protected motorbike garage.
A generously dimensioned seating area with a panorama window. A kitchen that leaves nothing to be desired. Sanitary and shower area are separated from the cabin by a glass door. A day cabin fully equipped with technical gadgets. Am ACTION MOBIL, which thanks to its compact dimensions, can access any terrain.
A height-adjustable bed at the rear of the cabin makes it possible! The height adjustable bed with its width of 160 cm provides comfort at a level so far reserved only for considerably bigger vehicles.
